Love is all things... But is it good enough?

All we want is to be loved, to feel loved, to be important. We have been in that before, We see the real love we want... we thought it would last forever and something would come to you, bang you in the head and reality sinks in... you have been really hurt... you lose trust, you felt betrayed by the very person who showed you how good love can be. When you love the person, when he wants you in his life back... IS LOVE enough? should you reason with your heart and use your mind? is love good enough reason to forgive and to accept? What do you think? Will you take back a person and forgive him because you still love him, or would you rather be hurt now and move on... as long as it takes, but move on? What is important to you?

Hi there Chiyosan! You're right! One of the needs of the person is to be accepted, to belong somewhere and to be loved and cared for. The thing is when it comes to relationships, love can never be enough. We need to have trust, respect, honesty and commitment to do your best to make it worse and be there for your partner no matter what. Love is a two-way street and it can never be nurtured just by being in love and doing nothing about it. Problems are all around us as well as temptations so love would have to be great for the relationship to grow and to stand the test of time. It takes work but it is very rewarding.

I am getting confused again, i love this person but i am wondering if love is enough for me to hold on to him and to fight for him. I am so hurt, and i felt really bad, betrayed and i feel that you are correct, we will always have problems and temptations. i do not know how i would react, how i would decide. I have been praying for answers, i am clouded by emotions, i am torn between accepting and not accepting him back. i am not sure if i could work out my own decision... =( thank you for your insight nanayangel

It depends on the gravity of the reason why you broke up in the first place. If the reason behind the break up is something unforgivable say, he impregnated someone, definitely I won't take him back. He should take responsibility for his actions. It had been said that once trust is broken, it cannot be mended. The same thing is true for relationships, if something like that will happen to me, I would definitely cut-off the relationship and move on.

it sure was grave. he was with another woman for about a year!!! and i had been left blind not only by him but also by his whole damn family. so that is grave! i would never trust him again and neither will i trust his family, so no i won't forgive him and never get back with him anymore. =) thanks for taking time to respond in the discussion, that is appreciated. Best Regards! See you Around! Happy mylotting.

It would depend on the situation. Love is an action not just a feeling and if he didn't act like he loved me then it wouldn't be worth going back.

Hi chiyosan, love is more important for life. But love itself is not enough it is linked with many things. Yeah ofcourse if love is there and it will forgive any kind of mistakes. No hurt if some one come back to us it is good and we must accept them, and share love. Have a good day.
